After last year's 9-0 season, there was a bit of
mixed feeling on the outcome of this year's squad.
But with seven returning starters the Pioneers posted
a reputable 8-2 record.
After an opening day victory over a strong North-
bridge club and the addition of place kicker George
Papoutsides from the soccer team, enthusiasm for
another fine season started to permeate the minds of
fans and coaches. Both Pioneer losses to Westfield
and Keene (both played for their respective division I
championships last year) were games in which the
Pioneers were equally as strong physically, but made
Most of the success of the teams record can be
attributed to the fine passing of Mark Palmerino and
the fine catches of both Mike Morrill and Craig
Walker. The Pioneer running game, unlike past sea-
sons, was inconsistent. The Pioneers also
had their share of injuries. )oe Bonadies missed the
first couple of games with a thigh injury. Rich Lopata
injured his knee in the St. Peters game and Steve
Kaitbenski dislocated his shoulder during the Auburn
game. They were both lost for the season.
With this season's 8-2 mark, Coach Don Marino,
in his 20th season as head coach, boosted his over
all record to 125-44-3.
Border all-stars are Mark Palmerino, Mike Morrill,
Joe Bonadies, Peter Holden, David List, Keith Di-
Gregorio, and George Papoutsides. The Telegram
and Gazette super teamers are Peter Holden and

Pioneers hold off the Warriors
for 27-10 drubbing
It was the big plays by the
Pioneers that gave them a hard-
earned victory over their rival, the
Tantaqua Warriors. When it
looked as though the Warriors
were gaining momentum offen-
sively, the Pioneer defense rose to
the occasion. The Pioneer run-
ning game was not up to par, only
gaining 74 yards in 32 carries. It
was the passing of Mark Pal-
merino (6-1 2, 1 09 yards) that kept
-the Pioneers on top. Joe Bonadies
(2 tds), Craig Walker (1 td), and
Mike Palmerino (1 td) scored for
For the first five minutes of this
year's 60th annual Turkey Day Clas-
sic, many of the 4000 fans crowed at
Dresser Street field feared that the
Pioneers were on their way to their
first loss of the seventies, at the hands
of the Bartlett Indians. They capi-
talized on two Pioneer mistakes to
take a 14-0 lead. But that did not last
long as the Pioneers, behind the pass-
ing of Mark Palmerino (12 for 19,
215 yds), scored 39 unanswered
points en route to their tenth straight
Turkey Day victory.
Mark was voted MVP for his out-
standing performance. Special recog-
nition should also be given to Craig
Walker (2 tds), Joe Bonadias (1 td),
Jack Santilli (1 td), and George
Papoutsides for his 35 yard field goal.

Of their overall record this year (3-8-3), Coach Wally

"We had an all-around good team this year," says
Coach Jill Normindin of her field hockey squad.
"The entire team was very aggressive and worked as
a unit." In these respects, she points out, they were
superior to last year's squad. She further adds that
everyone gave "100 % all of the time."
The defense was led by Cindy Beaudreau, while Jojo
Lambert tended the goal as dynamically as ever. "Jo
is very quick," states Normindin. "She's the best in
the league." The coach also mentions Patty Ciguerre
as being "an excellent ball handler."
The team recorded six shutouts this year, many for
which "Cindy was responsible." The season was
highlighted by 1-1 tie against the tough Auburn
squad. The Pioneerettes wrapped up their season
with an 8-4-2 record.
For the third consecutive year Jojo Lambert was
elected to the Border Conference All-Star Team. Join-
ng her were teammates Cindy Beaudreau and Kathy
Scorers included Kathy Laferriere (18), Julie Jarvis (7),
Cindy Beaudreau (6), Denise Bernard (5), Patty
Ciguerre (2), and Patty Bibeau (1).
" . . . extremely successful" is the way Coach Leduc
described his season. "We didn't expect to even be com-
petitive," he stated. However, his boys turned in an 8-3
record, and just missed qualifying for the Districts. The
highlight of the season the victory over Monson, who had
challenged the Pioneers with a 10-1 record.
Top runners were Sr. captain Jason Burnham (Border Con-
ference All-Star), Jrs. Bobby LeBel, and Louis Rodriguez,
and Freshman Glen Corbitt, Henry Hernandez, and

Coach Gately had expected a bet-
ter season than what the team
gave her. She stated, however,
that they had several disadvan-
tages to overcome. "We had a
week layoff in the middle of the
season (2 games were cancelled
the same week) — and when you
only have 8 games in the entire
season, that hurts." She also feels
that the game is a "psychological
one. You only score when your
opponent makes a mistake" and
added that "when the girls got
behind, they couldn't bounce
back" and consequently "dug
themselves into a hole." Lack of
depth also hurt — "I didn't have
enough players to substitute." If
she maintains this coaching posi-
tion next year, Gately plans on
"recruiting from gym classes."

The stage was set perfectly — the game was
home, the stands were packed. The opponent
— Bartlett High. Late in the second quarter,
Special K answered his fans' plea. He scored
his seventeenth point of the game to put him
over the coveted 1000 point plateau. The
stands erupted in a wild frenzy of screaming
and cheering. The game was stopped and
Krupinski was awarded the game ball. He
wrapped up the game with a career high of 41
game points total, although the Indians
squeeked by Southbridge for a 72-71 victory.

It appears the Pioneerettes Basket-
ball squad is on their way to a first
place in the Border Conference this
season. So far, they boast an impres-
sive 9-4 record and are 7-0 in the
Border Conference. Coach Theodoss
sites their victory over arch rivals
Bartlett Indians as the highlight of the
season. He also noted their "impres-
sive victory" over North Brookfield.

by sharing the Border Conference title with
North Brookfield. The girls went on to the Dis-
trict title game, knocking off top-seeded Algon-
quin, 56-45, in the process. Despite Cindy
Beaudreau's 30 points, the Pioneerettes fell to
Ayer High 58-51 in the final. Special recogni-
tion should be given to center Cindy Beaud-
reau, who scored a total of 87 points (average
of 28 points per game), in the three District
games. She finished the season only 64 points
shy of the 1000 mark. The Pioneerettes turned
in a season record of 16-6.

The Pioneerettes followed up their slow
5-4 start with ten straight victories. In-
cluded in these wins was a 7-6, ten inning
game against previously unbeaten Mon-
son. The Pioneerettes scored an average of
14.3 runs a game and allowed their oppo-
nents an average of only 7 runs per game.
When the girls went into the Districts, it
was with a formidable 15-5 record. They
swept the first game against Holy Name
10-7. The second, however, ended in a
Pioneerette defeat when Bartlett came
from a 6-0 deficit to win by three runs.

The boys' track team turned in an excellent sea
son this year. They were enhanced with severa
players from the baseball team, such as high
jumper Luis Pena and sprinter Jimmy Bellerose.
The season was highlighted with a victory over
a very strong Shepherd Hill team. The Pioneers
ended up 2nd in the Border Conference, and
sent Jimmy Bellerose (among others) to Dis-
tricts, where he won the Division III Class C
1 00 yard dash. He then moved on to capture a
5th place in the State Championship.

tude to all the dedicated people that
made our yearbook possible: our rep-
resentative, Linda Miller, from Hunter
Publishing; Mr. Desroches and Mr.
Morley for their cooperation and assis-
tance throughout the year; the business
coordinator, Mr. Welch, for his time
and patience. Without the unending
guidance and dedication of Miss
Donna Reid, this yearbook would not
be possible. We, as well as the staff,
would like to extend our deepest ap-
preciation to her. She took over the re-
sponsibilities of advisor and shared this
learning experience with the staff, help-
ing an inexperienced but dedicated
group to produce a reputable yearbook.
The editors of this year's book have
put in much of their personal time and
have put many other obligations sec-
ond. When crucial deadlines ap-
proached, we could always rely on one
another for assistance.
As editors-in-chief, our experiences
have varied greatly. We have learned to
take criticism, realizing that it has been
to help improve ourselves. As seniors,
we realize that this is vital in order to
succeed. We have begun to realize that
life is an unending process of growths;
we have taken our first steps in that
awareness. We hope this yearbook will
serve to bring that awareness to you.
